In April 1987, the last wild California condor was captured and taken to live in human care like the other twenty-six remaining birds of its kind. In Condor Comeback, National Book Award finalist and author of more than twenty books, Sy Montgomery details the efforts of scientists, volunteers, and everyday citizens to get California condors back in the wild.
An excellent compliment to the book is a California Condor stuffed animal.
